Beautiful 18th or 19th century bronze of the holy Buddhist monk Phra Malai visiting hell. This is a smaller version than the one I have in my collection and most likely is from an old temple. The base is about 3.75 x 3.75" and the sculpture stands about 10" tall. He, like most, is missing what I believe is a fan in his hands. Very old and excellent condition for its age with appropriate wear and one flaw in the mold or a small break on the top surface of "hell" as shown. Some gilt loss and he appears to be bent forward but mine is the exact same way. Not seen too often. This was from a La Jolla estate.
